Notes ESPN.com: "This is the definition of what owner Robert Kraft calls a 'high-class problem.'"

Fifteen seasonsafter Gillette Stadium opened, the Patriots — who went 9-7 in 2002, by the way — will have to figure a way to squeeze another Super Bowl banner above the south end zone.

According to ESPN.com,New England is considering design plans on how to proceed with thebanner commemorating their Super Bowl 51 victory in February against the Falcons.

Considering how good this team is at problem-solving during games, it's a good bet the Pats willhave things figured out come banner-raising time in September — even if it costs a little money.
